Canada sets Regulations amending the Energy Efficiency Regulations
The Energy Efficiency Regulations prescribe minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) for consumer and commercial energy-using products. They also prescribe labelling requirements for certain products to disclose and compare the energy use of a given product model relative to others in their category. The Regulations are amended regularly to introduce MEPS for new products and update existing MEPS. This proposed amendment to the Energy Efficiency Regulations, 2016 would: a) introduce MEPS, labelling and reporting requirements for 7 new product categories; b) introduce more stringent MEPS and/or update testing standards, as necessary, for 4 currently regulated product categories; and, c) introduce labelling and reporting requirements for 1 new product category.
